Frontier Drilling's target is to provide suitable equipment to the industry looking for drilling opportunities in the Beaufort & Chukchi Seas as well as all other arctic regions. Based on the documentation to be developed by Aker Arctic, Frontier Drilling's intention is to approach the leading conversion yards for the upgrade and modification work of the vessel later this year.
"The work awarded by Frontier Drilling is an excellent example of Aker Arctic's forward looking insight on the industry needs and also a sign of the increasing demand of services for Arctic developments", commented Karl-Erik Kjelstad, CEO of Aker Yards when opening the Inauguration Seminar in Helsinki to celebrate the opening of the new third generation ice model testing facilities. The seminar program included an analysis of the "Manhattan" project 30 years ago, and concluded in a demonstration model test of an Arctic double acting LNG carrier for Kara Sea operations.
